This is a blatant attempt to piggyback off the popularity of the global Hacktoberfest event from Digital Ocean and GitHub. Submit two pull requests to qualifying Wichita projects during the month of October and receive stickers from us!

Thanks to our sponsors!

What's this all about?

devICT Hacktoberfest is a great opportunity to learn about open source projects being built by developers in your community. You can contribute to new projects, build your portfolio or resume and make some new friends. This event was created to:

  • -Bring awareness to the open source projects that make Wichita a better place to live
  • -Bring light to the diversity of the Wichita Tech Community
  • -Create opportunities for those individuals who are underrepresented in tech
